|Hold that camera (Dec. 1, 1950)|
Fragment of "Hold that camera", broadcast on DuMont's WABD on Dec. 1, 1950. The show aired Fridays from 8:30 - 9 pm and apparently lasted just 13 weeks. Roscoe Karns (Rocky King) drops in and makes a pitch for his own show later that evening. Note: Opening credits and some of the ("integrated") commercials for "Esquire Boot Polish" are missing from this Kinescope.

Another military themed movie, made during the 2nd World War, so it's a little on the "gung ho" side. This is a little different from the other copy that is available, here. The opening title music has been restored and the hiss, pop, crackle has been cleaned from the audio. There are a lot of familiar faces, including Robert Lowery, who would later play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the "Batman and Robin" serial (1949).
